We have made it through the first two rounds of the US Open and only 3 players are under par. Tied for first are Tiger, Furyk, and Toms with Tiger and Furyk in the last group teeing off at 5:05 PM Central. Remember this tournament is being held on the West coast so we get prime-time golf in the Midwest and on the East coast.
The top two ranked golfers in Donald and McIlroy missed the cut as well as Masters champion Bubba Watson. This is now a four man tournament in my opinion: Tiger, Furyk, Toms, and McDowell all former major winners are the top four names on the leaderboard. The winning score I still say will be PAR because the course is expected to be more difficult on the weekend after playing to a stroke average of 74.5 the first two days. It’s just too hard for players to make up strokes because there aren’t a lot of birdie opportunities on this course.
If history is any guide Tiger is favored to win this tournament given he has won 8 times in 9 tries when leading or tied for the 36 hole lead in a major. Is this the weekend he breaks through after going 16 majors without a victory? Who do you think wins and give me a score?
